Born November 29th 1984 –
taken February 07, 2008
It is with great sorrow and disbelief that we say goodbye to our son Brandon High. Brandon was taken tragically from us on February 7, 2008 and our lives will never be the same. We know Brandon if you could you would take back the choice you made, to be with us all again today.
He leaves behind to mourn the “apple of his eye” his beautiful 15 month old daughter Sophia. His parents, Wendy and Lorne, his brother Matthew and Sophia’s mother Jessica Audette, his sister Megan, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Brandon was predeceased by his Grandpa and Granny Lewis, his Grandfather and Grandmother High and his “Papa Fred” who we know will all be waiting and welcoming him with open arms.
Sophia was the love of his life and he was an amazing father to her, her eyes would light bright whenever he was near and thru all our memories together she will never be let to forget you. We know you will always be watching over her and keeping her safe.
Brandon had many different sides, he was a loving son and older brother, best friend to many and even if you had just met him it would only take a matter of minutes for Brandon to welcome you into his life. He would do anything for anyone, no questions asked. He was very family orientated and would most often be the first to arrive and last to leave at family gatherings. He loved spending time with his family talking about the day, reminiscing about days gone by or about loved ones since passed.
Brandon loved all sports and he and his younger brother Matthew shared many good times together participating and enjoying them all. Brandon loved being an older brother and spending quality time with his brother Matt. Matt adored his brother Brandon and will miss their yearly Canucks trips together.
Brandon was proud to be from Cumberland and worshipped it as Dodge; he was a loyal friend to all. He loved the outdoors whether it was with his buddies or for his passion of being at Comox Lake during the summer months at the family cabin. He would attempt to fish out of an old leaky boat given him by his grandfather and loved to chat by the fire at night. Over the past year, Brandon took pride in the renovations of his home he was providing for his daughter Sophia and with fingers crossed for Jessica anew.
Brandon’s life, while unbearably short, was lived to the fullest, he looked forward to any new adventure. He will be dearly missed by all and always hold our eternal love, we will miss his infectious charismatic style and those beautiful brown eyes. He will always be remembered for his big smile and charm.
We wish we had just one more day, an hour or a minute to say the things we’ve always shared and to tell you again just how much you meant and how much we all love you.
A Service will be held at the United Church in Cumberland February 16, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. followed by a tea and time of togetherness after the service nearby at the Seniors Hall.
